Redrawing old comics and NEWS
There's always that feeling when you look at your old work and imagine how different/better it would look if you redrew it now. I feel that, especially, with my old comics. Today I actually got a chance to redraw one of my old strips and wanted to share it. This is Dee and The Boy in the Bunny Suit, they appeared in my college newspaper three years ago, and they're the stars of my new book I'm working on. I wanted to start off the book with this original strip where they met, but, looking back at it, I knew I had to make it better. The kids are a little younger, and cleaned up and colored to fit in with the rest of the book. And after our brief flashback, we go to six years later...
This is a panel from a comic page that has been accepted in the Society of Illustrators 2008 Student Show. I'm extremely honored to have been accepted into the show, and I'm double-excited since the piece is a comic page. Comics as art, yeah!
